MSU String Ensemble concert to feature music faculty
Minot State University's String Ensemble will present a concert April 23 in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall at 7:30 p.m.
This concert will feature music faculty Dianna Anderson, harpsichord; Elizabeth Demme, flute; and Jon Rumney, violin; as soloists performing Johann Sebastian Bach's "Brandenburg Concerto No. 5."
"The Bach is a monumental piece. Because the harpsichord part is so extensive, it could be described as the earliest concerto for keyboard," Rumney said. "The students interact with the soloists, and it makes for chamber music playing on a larger scale, rather than in small groups like a string quartet."
The ensemble will also perform works by two American composers, Charles Ives' "The Unanswered Question" and Steve Reich's "Clapping Music." MSU students Sam Buchholz and Rae-Mae Owens will conduct the Ives pieces.
As with all Division of Music concerts, the concert is free and open to the public. For questions, contact 858-3185.
